Budget Watching & Ice Cream Inhaling 


This week, West Jordan and Draper citizens will want to attend public budget hearings to learn what programs and services their tax dollars are funding. As a reward for being such a concerned citizen, why not treat yourself to some free ice cream at the Salt Lake City Gallivan Center during an event that will also raise money for the Salvation Army?

Draper City Budget Hearing
Tuesday, June 24

OK Draperians, it’s time to get fiscal! This hearing before the Draper City Council will consider fiscal year budgets for not just the city as a whole but also the redevelopment agency, the Traverse Ridge Special Service District and the local municipal building authority. Show up and follow your money.
Draper City Hall, 1020 E. Pioneer Road, 801-576-6318, June 24, 7 p.m., Draper.ut.us, for more info e-mail Bob Wylie at bob.wylie@draper.ut.us

Ten Thousand Scoops Fundraiser
Wednesday, June 25

Sometimes a fundraiser is about donating time, money, volunteer effort or a combination of all three for a good cause, with perhaps the only reward being a commemorative T-shirt and some warm fuzzy feelings. This fundraiser is about eating free ice cream to help the Salvation Army. Yes, that’s right, show up and eat free ice cream provided by Denali Flavors and Meadow Gold Dairy. For each scoop served, Denali Flavors will donate $1 to The Salvation Army of Salt Lake City in an effort to raise $10,000 to support its important community programs. Free ice cream, a good cause … and free ice cream!
Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main, June 25, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Facebook.com/Moosetracks/Events

West Jordan City Budget Hearing

Now that you’re all loaded with free ice cream, West Jordanians should have the sugar necessary to carry yourselves through the West Jordan City Council fiscal budget hearing. This is your chance to offer feedback on proposed funding for the city general fund, road capital fund, fleet fund and other programs.
